A toy store in Seymour, a country town north of Melbourne, has been robbed twice by an organised crime gang. Among the stolen property were LEGO TECHNIC and LEGO City sets. The thieves removed the glass panel from the front door to gain entry, and in the first attack, removed the hard drive from the store's CCTV camera, stealing the evidence of their attack.

Well, at least they have good taste.

 

(Though that wasn't the proper way to show it. Hopefully they'll be caught.)

I find it ironic that a bunch of the City sets they stole were probably Police sets. Maybe they wanted figs to fit their criminal likeliness?

 

All in all, its kind of sad that they would do this to a toy store, because they're probably just going to try to sell these on the secondary market and it won't be easy to know if the merchandise is stolen or not. (Although if they just suddenly opened a BrickLink store with a bunch of inventory out of no where, that might draw suspicion to them.)

That's what the media thinks will happen. I suggest that ALL members watch out for City and TECHNIC sets being sold in Australia, in case the sellers are these thieves. ALL LEGO sellers are suspects at this stage.
